Ingredients

  • **Pear Slaw**
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 julienne-cut pear
  • 1/3 red onion shaved or thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup matchstick carrots
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced radish
  • 1/3 cup cilantro roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp canola or vegetable oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • Optional garnish: sesame seeds
  • **Ginger-Soy Glazed Pork**
  • 1 - 1.25 lbs boneless pork loin chops
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 3 tbsp lower-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tsp mirin
  • 1/2 tsp Sriracha optional
  • Optional garnish: sliced green onion

Instructions

  • Begin by preparing slaw ingredients. In a large bowl, combine all vegetables. In a smaller bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients: fish sauce, rice wine vinegar, sugar, oil, lime juice, salt and pepper. Pour over vegetables and toss to evenly distribute. Set aside.
  • Prepare pork marinade by adding garlic, soy sauce, honey, ginger, mirin and Sriracha in a medium-sized bowl and whisking to combine. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-HIGH heat.
  • Season pork chops with a dash of salt and pepper and add to heated skillet (*if skillet is NOT non-stick, add a spray of non-stick cooking spray or dash of oil). Sear chops for ~3 minutes, flip and sear for another 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Pour marinade evenly over pork chops. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until pork chops are cooked through, flipping once more. You'll notice the marinade will thicken and begin turning into a sticky glaze. Transfer pork chops to a plate and top with sliced green onion. Pair with slaw, top with sesame seeds if desired.
